    French TV has ever devoted so much air-time to an American inauguration. Ever!!

      I mean, I would've understood if it was covered by, say, the cable/satellite news channels.  But that it was on the local channels (and I've read from somebody else that this was the main thing talked about in news in France ... or was it Canada, I don't remember) is something.  The world was definitely watching.

        the regular French news spent a fair amount of time on it, with the addition of reporting on Sarkozy's best wishes to Obama and views of various ex-pat venues filled with people celebrating.
